Hello! My name is Brenda and I have CFS, FM, and Chronic Lyme Disease. I have been doing a lot of research on the web about new treatments and possible cure's for CFS and FM. About 4 months ago I ran across some wonderful articles by Dr. Cheney, and his latest theories for the causes of FM and CFS. The next day, I saw a commercial on TV for the Fibro and Fatigue Center. My first thought after seeing the commercial was that this is probably just another pain clinic wanting to make a buck. After all, I've tried EVERYTHING up to this point and NOTHING worked. Just for curiosity's sake I went to the website (siter removed by mod.), and went to the Clinical Educational Articles section. It must have been fate that lead me there because all of the research I found on FM & CFS was right in front of my eyes on their webpage. They base their treatments off of the LATEST research (most out of Europe). I am one of the lucky ones who only lives 45 minutes away from one of the locations in TX. So I made an appointment and they made me fill out this lengthy questionairre with all of my symptoms, etc. When I went in for my appointment they took A LOT OF BLOOD and tested for things I had never even heard of. My insurance payed 80% of all labwork. The lab in the office is Quest, so most insurance companies will cover the blood work. 3 weeks later I went in for my results and was surprised to find out that I had: *Reverse T-3 Throid (T4 is the standard Thryoid test Doctor's test you for that usually comes out "normal", but T-4 converts to T-3 and you need T-3 for proper Thyroid Function). *Low Adrenals *Low Cortisol Levels *Low Growth Hormone *Malabsorption of B-12 (can lead to neurological damage if not treated) *Insomnia *Low DHEA/Low Pregenolone *Low Immunoglobulin A *Low Natural Killer Cells (immune system reaction to foreign viruses or microorganisms) I'll try not to bore you with other details, but the doctor gave me some prescription medications and lots of herbal medications to help get my body back where it needs to be for me to eventually be "cured". I've also been going once a week to get IV treatment (nutrition to help me heal faster). After 3 months on this regimen, I can tell you that I am feeling better than I have in YEARS! Overall I'm about 20-25% better, but it's only been 3 months. It is a LONG process to try and undo all of the issues going on inside our bodies, but I am pretty sure that within 9-12 months I will be totally cured. I am confident because I have spent over 12 hours getting IV's talking to the other women in the room who have been there longer than I, who are feeling 75% to 90% better! Even though I'm not 100% better YET, I wanted to let all of you know about this place and the theories behind the research. It is very cutting edge treatment, and has only been available for about a year. They are opening up branches ALL OVER THE US, so if there is not a clinic near you there probably will be soon. Also, they can treat you remotely as well. I've heard of people doing that. Becasue this treatment is "non-traditional", most insurance companies consider the doctor's "out of network". So you will most likely have to pay out of pocket (or they have Care Credit that you can put your treatment on if you don't have the money now). None of the herbs are covered under insurance but you won't be on them forever. The goal of this place is to get you healed. I wanted to let you all know about this option because it could be a life saver for SO MANY who suffer with these debilitating illnesses. Even though I'm new to this treatment, I can already see the light at the end of the tunnel! Best of luck to you all and if you have any questions please feel free to ask. I will visit the posting as often as possible. Thank you for letting me share my story of hope! Go visit the website for more information: (site removed by mod.
